Daniel Norgren :: Live

A live album might seem like a strange entry point to an artist’s catalog but Daniel Norgren’s newly released Live offers just that—as well as expanding the Swedish blues interpreter’s sound. Recorded just over a year ago, before the pandemic shut down gigs for who knows how long, it finds Norgren and a lively ensemble opening up songs from his songbook and letting them wander about. He may have got his start solo, one guy banging out the blues on homemade instruments and emulating American records, but Norgren’s a bandleader now, with a choogling, breezing, and occasionally space-bound combo making significant noise behind him.
